"This beautiful and informative book is a tribute to all of those who fought this battle, but especially to the survivors...... an extraordinary book for living today." -Lidia Bastianich, Host of the Public Television series Lidia's Italy, chef, restaurateur and author. Much has been done in contemporary times to bring awareness and possibly a cure for breast cancer. Organizations, campaigns, marathons, research, survivor groups all point to a big pink ribbon. But is breast cancer, a disease that afflicts millions and attacks the very essence of being a woman, a recent phenomenon? Not so according to Reflections of the Breast an extraordinary book documenting the research and collaboration between Tanya Bastianich Manuali, Ph.D. and Dr. Francis Arena. This dreadful disease is as old as our history. In this book Reflections of the Breast, through art, the existence of breast cancer through the ages is documented. Each image evokes the time, society, and medicine. The paths of breast cancer in each work of art becomes obvious as the eye of the artist accurately captured it. "A fascinating and provocative journey back in time. Dr. Francis Arena and Tanya Bastianich Manuali, Ph.D. create an insightful and visual plateau as they explore the illustration of breast cancer and breast disease beginning with the earliest centuries after the birth of Christ. Reflections of the Breast reads like a delicious novel, but is all true and filled with astounding information." -Valerie Smaldone, Media Personality and Ovarian Cancer patient advocate, speaker.
